2010-11 Tigers wrestling schedule
Steamboat Springs Hayden added six placers of its own from the same Rangely tournament and finished second as a team.
T-Lane Mazzola at 119, Cory Terry at 125 and Treyben Letlow at 215 pounds all won their weight divisions.
Mazzola and Letlow cruised through their brackets.
“He’s working hard and getting better every week,” Hayden coach Ty Camilletti said about Mazzola. “He still has tons of room to grow and improve and he’s doing that. He went through the tournament pretty easily. He was determined.”
Mazzola nearly had to face off against Hayden’s Journey Freeman, a junior varsity wrestler competing in the tournament. Freeman fell just short in his best day of the season, however. He went on to finish third.
Terry had to go to three overtimes in the championship match to win his first high school tournament.
“It was great to see the look on his face afterwards,” Camilletti said. “The fans were going crazy. It was a war. He had to give every inch of effort to pull that one out.”
Gage Webb was second at 145 pounds, and Ryan Domson was second at 171.
“Domson just made one mistake, and he knew it,” Camilletti said. “He tried to step over the kid at the wrong time and got thrown to his back and pinned. We really thought before that he was going to come back and win it.”
Scott Armbruster was just one win away from placing at 135 pounds, and Camilletti said Jordon Ferrier picked up valuable experience, wrestling just his second tournament of the year at 130 pounds.
“The kids just wrestled their hearts out,” Camilletti said. “We just left with a really good feeling. It’s good times for Hayden wrestling.”
